Skirt around all parts?

Skirt around all parts?

Postby RichWP » 17 Nov 2017, 11:22

Hello,

Is there a way to force the skirt to outline all parts (not just each individual) in multi-part prints?

I generally use the skirt to quickly determine if I have any leveling issues before I get too far into a print; also, printing a skirt for part 'B' after laying down the skirt and first layer of part 'A' seems unnecessary.

Very new to Kiss (awesome slicer BTW), so hopefully I'm not missing something obvious.

Thanks!

Rich.

I don't think there's a way, but I agree and would love to see that on 2.0 wishlist.

One of the KISS quirks that make no sense ;-)
Probably the result of "skirt" being interpreted as a "brim with a distance".

No, previous versions with the "skirt" option did exactly the same.

Personally, I never use "skirt"; I just print a priming line at the front of the bed before every print:

Code: Select all
G1 Y-3 Z0.250 F7200.000
G1 X50.0 E75.0  F1000.0
G1 X160.0 E10.0  F1000.0
G1 X220.0 E6 F1000.0
G1 X240.0 E2 F1000.0
G1 Y-1
G1 X40 E15 F1000
G1 X0 E2 F1000.0
G1 E-<DESTRING> F4800


The above is for the Original Prusa i3 Mk2/S + MMU, where the loading is somewhat inconsistent and requires rather a long priming line...

Even worse, it prints the skirt on top of any supports which are printed first. (this may be an interaction of skirts of a given height and variable layer height).
